    Could use help on perfecting my Dark Souls PtD build.

    Post by ICEFANG on Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:53 pm

    This is the character I have decided to take onto Dark Souls Prepare to Die:
    http://tinyurl.com/cbrpbmt

    Its quite simple, and straightforward, a great mix of things I love and things that are effective. This build is not in question and I love it to death.

    However, you may or may not be aware, I'm a huge fan of removing the DWGR (I seem to notice a lot are, please don't discuss that ring here), if anything, just because it makes the game so much easier. I also am in favor of removing the Ring of Favor and Protection, for a similar reason. Even though almost all my builds use them, its just amazing how omnieffective it is. It's not really for OP reasons, but, once again, it makes the game a good deal easier, and I prefer to force a bit of diversity in the PvP land. I'm sick of the effectiveness of DWGR+RoFaP, its nuts and I want them both to be removed.

    That's why you're here, I am happy with the armor, the lack of spells, the weapons, and the shield, but I don't know which ring to add in exchange for this build here, the no-RoFaP one. Although its unlikely to be removed, and I will honestly use it if it's there, I wanted to prepare for this, and not be blind-sighted if it did happen.

    Here is the build:
    http://tinyurl.com/cc8v3sb

    I do not want to change anything about it, just that ring. I'm open to suggestions, but I'd prefer to know why you said what you said too.

    Also, I have considered the effectiveness of the Estoc over the Mail Breaker, and the Composite Bow over the Short Bow and considered this build, if you put your vote for Havel's Ring, then you choose this build.

    http://tinyurl.com/c2fnm4r

    If you didn't notice, I'm a perfectionist. Must have 100% full haha!

    Lastly, this isn't truly PvP focused 100%, but since I am in doubt I will die against the enemies, even in Prepare to Die, that's its primary look. If it has effectiveness in PvE that's important to me too though. I don't really make PvP or PvE builds, just both.

    I found it interesting that its much harder to choose both rings when the quite effective RoFaP is removed and you don't use magic.

    I'm gonna go with Red tearstone ring. I think you're going to be close to death really often with that build so the ring comes handy for you.

    There isn't anything in the game that doesn't make one thing or another easier,
    I personally have a gripe about armor and weapons they simply make the game
    too easy

    I would pick either the RTS, the wolf ring or the leo ring.
    RTS is pretty straightforward, you get a damage boost when you health is low. This could mean a lot if you use the roar.
    The wolf ring is really only if you face a katana/rapier/spear user, and i don´t know if you need it even then.
    The leo ring is very good with the halberd. If i roar and break their guard, i can get 700 damage with one hit of the halberd, imagine how much it would be with the leo ring. You could almost OHK people. It´s also really useful against slow weapons. You can wait for them to attack, then you attack right after. The halberd is longer than any strength weapon i´ve fought against so, you get the damage boost without getting hit.

    Im taking this build silly My original one - Bosses cannot OHKO you - their attacks specifically take a certain percentage of your health - that is one of the reasons this build is so effective. http://tinyurl.com/bvwxbxk - it uses Dusk Crown Ring until it reaches 20% hp. I am unfortunately on an extremely high NG with it therefore I am liable to suffer - heck, this build is rather effective in PVP due to my tactic before the duel begins is putting on the SoA and I end up with 20% hp so I cannot afford to be hit but I hit like a truck - oh, and don't even mention when I throw on PW - people just drop twisted

    I was concerned that I'd die too much, without having a chance to fight back, 300 is kinda a small buffer. I also wasn't sure about the Leo Ring, but I should try that out, considering 2 (or 3?) of my 3 weapons are pokey weapons. I dislike the Wolf Ring for this build, because it doesn't have any effect on some weapons (I don't like rolling that way). But for some reason I was really interested that my dragon breath would do more damage with it on haha! Leo Ring seems like a constant, but less powerful version of the RTSR.

    EDIT: Can someone tell me exactly what the Leo Ring does? Exactly? I have a good idea, but I'd like to know as much about the specifics as I can.
